When A Stranger Calls Poster
A local horror film festival wanted posters to pay homage to some of the classic horror films they were going to be showing. This poster showcases the 1979 film When A Stranger Calls, which is about a babysitter who keeps getting creepy phone calls from a stranger. To play on that theme, the poster was designed where the parents left a
note by the phone. Back in the day, parents would leave the number of the restaurant they were going to be at, but our note has a checklist for babysitter 101. Of course, the last item is left unchecked. A handwritten font was chosen for the note and a creepy display font for the movie title. The color red was subtly balanced throughout to emphasize the blood in a horror movie.
